In a sign of escalation in tension along the international border in R S Pura sector, Pakistani Rangers fired mortars on the Indian side killing some cattle in Arnia area during wee hours of Sunday.
Giving details, sources said that Pakistani Rangers started firing on BSF’s Pittal post and two other positions in the area around 2 am. The BSF also retaliated.
However, some of the Pakistani shells fell in residential areas causing panic among villagers living in adjoining villages like Gharana, Sai and Kaku De Kothey on the Indian side. The panic stricken people came out of their houses to take shelter at safer places till sun rise.
The Pakistani Rangers have been resorting to unprovoked firing on Indian side along the international border for the last one week, resulting in the death of one BSF jawan and injuries to seven others, including civilians. The BSF attribute incidents of unprovoked firing by Pakistan to attempts aimed at pushing terrorists into the Indian side.
Meanwhile, additional BSF personnel have been deployed along the international border and vigil stepped up to check any infiltration attempts from Pakistan side. The firing from across the border has, however, adversely hit the paddy cultivation in the area as people prefer to stay indoors during the day instead of going to their fields.
